THE hotly-anticipated bout between Youtuber Jake Paul and Love Island star Tommy Fury is ON.
The pair will finally square up in the ring on August 6.
They should have already met at the end of last year before Fury pulled out through injury and illness.
And the 23-year-old is the favourite to leave this clash with the win.
Ladbrokes price Fury – younger brother to heavyweight champ Tyson – as the 4/6 favourite to win.
His record stands at 8-0 after his most recent points win in April – with four of those wins coming by knockout.
Tommy Fury vs Jake Paul
Paul’s record since turning his hand to boxing is 5-0, with four of those wins coming from stoppages.
Despite constant trash talk on social media, Paul will go into this one as the slight underdog.
He’s been given 11/8 odds to beat Fury, with 10/1 offered on a draw between the duo.
Paul took to social media to reveal Fury had again pulled out of the bout – which was later denied by Fury.

Replying to a video Paul uploaded saying he had backed down, Fury replied: “The fight is on. August 6th. Forget a team or any other bull****.
“I don’t need anybody to help me lay you flat on that canvas. Oh and thanks for finally signing the drug testing… you only agreed to it when you realised the fight was at risk – who needs who.”
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “The battle of the social media stars is on once again, and as things stand it’s Tommy Fury who is most likely to get the better of Jake Paul.”
